Join Us At ‘The Link’ – A Free Networking Event For U24s

The Link1200x900

Next month, the Rife team are hosting The Link – a free informal networking event for young creative people looking to widen their network.

Join us at the Watershed on Wednesday 24th February from 6pm-8pm

Bristol is full of lots of creative young people who are pioneers of their chosen industries, but it’s often difficult for us to find one another. There’s a spoken word performance on every night, exhibitions opening all the time, and magazines popping up everywhere – and loads of these are being run by young people.

Networking can be difficult, awkward and stressful but it’s a vital part of the creative industry in making those connections with others. The Link is an informal space for us to widen our creative network of fellow talent – from the ones just starting out, to those at the top of their game and everyone in between.

Are you looking for writers for your magazine? A photographer? A fashion designer? A filmmaker? An illustrator? A web designer? Or trying to promote your project, collaborate or share ideas?

Join us at the Watershed on Wednesday 24th February from 6pm-8pm to meet other young creative people aged between 16 and 24. Free entry and some complimentary drinks will be available.

If you’d like to come along, let us know by e-mailing Antonia on and if you’re working on a project and looking for a particular collaborator, let us know and we’ll match you up before you arrive.

Interested in art? 16-24 and not in education or unemployed? Head over to the Rife Guide to check out this new free arts programme Paper Arts and Prince’s Trust are running.

Support more young people to have their voices heard

Rife is Watershed‘s online magazine created for young people, by young people.

We offer paid internships and publish work by young writers, photographers, illustrators, and filmmakers from all sorts of backgrounds, helping them get into creative careers. Rife has reached over 8,000 young people through our workshops, over 220 young people have made stuff for Rife on topics ranging from mental health to identity to baked beans, and last year, over 200,000 people visited our website.

In these complex and uncertain times hearing from and supporting young people who are advocating for social change and contributing fresh perspectives has never been so important. 

Through supporting Rife you can ensure that this important work continues and that more young people have their voices heard.
